Description

In a recent bout of improvements Theo has introduced the GAIA 4 into the mix.  This new model sounds even fuller and more 'alive' than the previous model!

From the manufacturer:

The result of the GAIA 4’s new design is an expressiveness, and creativity-of-play, never before experienced in a traditional sounding tenor mouthpiece!  It includes and updated version of our proprietary Shark-Gill Baffle™, and our newly designed Large-Stadium Chamber™, which is a technologically advanced version of a traditional large chamber.   Once you spend some time on it, you will find a dynamic range and flexibility not found in any other tenor mouthpiece.

“Having tried many types of mouthpieces over the years, Theo Wanne products embody all the great qualities; tone, projection and color. His mouthpieces are one of kind.” – Dwayne Dugger (currently with Bruno Mars; recorded Uptown Funk on the GAIA). 

The GAIA 4 tenor mouthpiece opens up a whole new world for the tenor saxophone. Not only is the DESIGN revolutionary, but it uses our state-of-the-art manufacturing and premium materials so that design is made right! The GAIA 4 has evolved from the GAIA 1 with an even more core and body to the sound.
